I have some stuff I'd be willing to part with Matti. For very low cost and shipping. Keep me posted as we go, and I'll keep tabs on my stash for any 'goodies' you may be able to use.I'm looking forward to the diversion. I wish I had the stuff to make a build work, but alas, I lack both physical and metaphorical pieces.
Some nice parts there. What’s in the tank?I'm hitting Little Neutrino with some protons and blowing it apart.
The stays were mangled in the years before I found this '36 Hawthorne built by CWC. So the whole rear quarter will probably go. As good as the coating of minwax walnut looks on her, that will likely change and the layered plexiglass tank will get some upgrades too. I wish I had a tubing roller but since I don't I'll be building a wooden buck to bend some tubing for the rear so I'm in the unlimited class with this one. This was built for BONINE and it didn't finish anywhere near the top. (a 14 way tie for 44th with 3 votes ) It is however, the first bike that gained me any notoriety, winning a Best of Show trophy sponsored by the Chicago Taildraggers and Heritage Bikes in 2015 and a Promoter's Pick tag at the Jalopy Fest car show in 2018. Neutron Bomb is my working title...

Thanks. It's still skiptooth. The tank is layers of plexi divided by knurled brass, Vacuum tubes and bits of copper. It's pretty wild in person but I've never really gotten a "good" picture of it.Some nice parts there. What’s in the tank?

I was studying Little Nutrino'ts tank last year as a possible way to decorate last summer's build off Spaceliner. The holes in the layers of plexiglass made me think of the floating rings around the antenna on Elroy's hat and a lot of other places in the Jetsons. Was thinking a couple plexiglass rings on the handlebars at the grips and 2 or 3 on the neck. Maybe on the seat post and tail lights too. Paint the edges of the plexiglass black and it would look like floating rings.
Carl, that is one of coolest tanks I've ever seen!! Wow! Don't be surprised if somebody ( **cough cough** ) copies that concept. Remember:
